It is with great honor that Enlightened Mama has passed the doula training torch! Please see the message below from Community Aware Birthworker trainers, Rhonda and Heather!
“We wanted to make an exciting announcement regarding doula training and programming. With great cooperative spirit we would like to announce Community Aware Birthworker (CAB) led by Rhonda Fellows and Heather Christine Struwe.
2021 Doula Training Dates
Lactation, Feeding, and Craniosacral Birth Integration
This course, taught by Liz Naylor, doula, educator, lactation consultant and craniosacral therapist, can be taken to meet the requirement for Enlightened Mama certification for birth and postpartum doulas or on its own for anyone looking to further their understanding of the powerful connection between feeding, pregnancy, and the birth experience. This 6-hour course is offered the day prior to the Birth Doula Workshop and is essential, as you’ll learn the skills necessary to help families establish lactation, get comfortable with breastfeeding/chestfeeding and gain confidence in supporting them through early days. We’ll use gentle hands-on craniosacral therapy techniques to help babies and parents transition together from life in the womb to life outside, begin the healing process of potential pregnancy and/or birth trauma, and work towards optimizing connection and bonding for the whole family.

Always feeling like you need to:
A. Connect with your birth professional community?
